  1. I am not sure if leaning comfortably on the podium is a bad thing – yes, if you camp there for the entire speech, it is… but if you go around and back to the podium and lean, it shows some authority over the audience, as if “I can lean on the podium and this stage is mine”.

  3. It’s really just basics she’s talking about…. Watch successful people, copy successful people’s body language. Copy/paste is the way to go.

  4. Good content, but just FYI, podium is the platform that you stand on. Lectern is the item on the table there that you were leaning on.

  6. If you are looking for public spekaing tips, don’t come to this woman. She can hardly speak English; she is useless and who in their right mind would actually think of standing next to a plant while speaking. First thing she needs to do is dress. Your first impression comes from what someone looks like; based on this old lady, I’m bored before she even opens her gob

  8. Why is she so upset? It looks like she’s been to many Mafia public speaking events. The only speakers who hide behind a tree are those avoiding being seen by police who suddenly walk in. Same thing – only Mafia bosses lean and hold on to the podium and say “YOu talkin to me?” and same thing with nervous pacing – – and smoking a cigarette – – planning their next hit.

  9. I don’t want to HIDE myself behind a podium…because I was to SHOW myself to all……When I deliver presentatons I use the rest of the space……..

    When I delivered a presentaion in the State Bank of Pakistan I didn’t use the pdium….There were a table for exetives next to that..so I had to come down the 2 feet high platform
